Republican Lawmaker Proposes Bill Nullifying Federal Gun Laws In Tennessee

Tennessee Considers Nullifying Federal Gun Laws – Downtrend

Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers (R – Mt. Juliet) is on a roll this week. Along with 10 co-sponsors, she introduced “The Health Care Freedom and Affordable Care Act Noncompliance Act” to effectively nullify ObamaCare in her state. Now, she’s taking aim at federal gun-control laws.

Beavers has introduced Senate Bill 1607 to effectively nullify federal gun laws in The Volunteer State. Under the proposed law:

* Any federal enactment or enforcement actions relating to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void in the state

* Any federal enactment or enforcement action impacting or infringing upon the rights of an individual or entity relative to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition would be void

* Agents, employees and public officials in the state and its political subdivisions would be prohibited from carrying out federal gun laws

* Any attempt to enforce federal gun laws would be considered a misdemeanor and subsequent attempts would qualify as a felony

The law, if passed, is set to take effect on July 1. Thus, residents of The Volunteer State could see their Second Amendment rights significantly strengthened in less than six months.

Other states, including Missouri, Virginia and Wyoming, have recently considered similar legislation. And Alaska and Kansas have already signed their own Second Amendment protections into law. However, Tennessee’s proposed law appears to be among the strongest out there with the potential for violators to be charged with a felony.

It seems an increasing number of states are fed up with the Obama administration’s gun-grabbing policies. Will Tennessee be the next one to successfully tell the federal government to back off?
